    intermittent problems with camera turning on and pushing out the lens, then it just shuts off, even with new batteries. Sent it in to pentax once, they sent it back and said it was fine, but it started having problems again.

    the lens will not open up, with fresh batteries it still won't open. It's been to pentax for shutter problems before. It keeps shutting off

    I tried grabbing the lens when I turn it on, but it only comes out a little bit so there isnt enough to hold on to. I've only had this camera a few months...please help

Grab the lens when it extends so that it won't retract. Camera will power off. Some careful pushing and pulling on the lens assembly seems to unstick whatever is causing the malfunction. Power it up, it will retract. Power on again to check results.

THe flash of my Optio E10 gone. What should I do?

Make sure the battery is fresh or new.
Make sure to check all your menu settings.
These settings can affect the flash.
You can reset to default...then see what happens.
You can always sell the camera as a parts camera on a site such as Ebay.

E10 and s45 same problem

the batteries needed for the cameras are quite high powered

though the batteries show that they are fuly charged most times they have lost their actual capacity of power storage in them so not being able to supply enough to start the camera best way to test this is to start the camera on preview mode if this works then you will need to buy a new set of rechargable batteries, i would suggest to take batteries in the range of 2000MAh to 2500MAh and

the normal batteries will not be able to sustain long even for normal lens open and retract functions, instead of normal batteries try LR6 varieties (eg: Duracell, Energizer, etc)

It could be that the battery can't hold a charge anymore.

You will probably have to get a new battery.

Make sure the camera is working fine and that youre able to take pictures with the power cord plug in. If that works it isn't the camera, it's the battery.
